Why? Do you really not understand basic math?

600,000. The 9 is in the ten thousandth place to make it ten from 9 you have to carry the 1. Is this right? I suck at math!!

The common sense answer would be 600,000 because you have to carry the one. Since you're asking, I'm assuming that is not the answer they want lol.

you said round to the nearest ten thousand... not 100,000

600,000. 8 is 5 or more, so the 9 has to go up one. But to change that to 10 it will also change the hundred thousands place.

There is a math resource page. It only goes up to the hundreds place, but they asked you to round to the nearest 10. The numbers used in the example also had to change the hundreds place.
